Brave! Watch unnerving moment man tickles world's 2nd most venomous land snake

- An Australian catcher is seen in a video tickling the eastern brown snake

- It is the world's second most venomous land snake

- During the cold winter season, it is considered less active but is still dangerous

An unnerving video has surfaced online showing an Australian snake catcher literally tickling a highly venomous eastern brown snake.

The eastern brown snake is considered the world's second most venomous land snake and is therefore best left alone.

However, the unnamed catcher took advantage of the cold winter season, which renders the snakes less active compared to warmer seasons.

In the video, the serpent indeed appears slow to respond. In fact, it moves as if it is quite enjoying the tickle.

Nevertheless, the catcher had to be careful and quickly moved his hand away once the slithery reptile had it in its sight.
